      Thanks for posting. I'm currently on a trial of Nivolumab along with Ipilimumab. I've had my second infusion with very little side effects. I was stage III NSCLC, had surgery, radiation and chemo. Did well for about a year and a half then it reared it's ugly head again. I feel very fortunate to be assigned to the trial study. Thanks for the article, I need to know as much about what I'm undertaking as possible.

      Lilly you are welcome. Have you seen my postings about the important of genomic testing? This is so important for you as more and more targeted therapies are based on the molecular profile of the tumor. You would want to get the current cancer biopsied and then tested.

      Has this been offered to you?

      The good news is the investment community is all a buzz with immunotherapy for LC so hold on.. in the next couple years we will see some remarkable progress.

      I have great hopes for your current treatment helping you. Many many people are being put into remission for years.
